Daily D – Mark 14:62
Mark 14:62 “I am,” said Jesus. “And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven.” (NIV)
Jesus was asked a point-blank question. Jesus gave a point-blank answer. To you, who is Jesus? Is he guilty of blasphemy? Or, is he the Son of God?
This is still a pertinent question because theologians amateur and otherwise frequently declare that Jesus never said he was God’s Son. They apparently do not read the source material.
Jesus’ confession led to his condemnation, his death sentence, and the possibility of your salvation and mine. Dirty Harry famously declared, “A man’s got to know his limitations.” Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection truly declares that we need to know, understand, and apply the reality of who Jesus is and what he did for us.
This is a good thought on the day after Election Day, isn’t it?
Here’s another good thought: Politics is not Ultimate Reality.
I will live a Jesus-shaped life instead of a politics-shaped life.
Our Father, thank you for being Ultimate Reality. Thank you for salvation. Thank you for truly being above it all. Thank you for being deeply engaged in every heart and mind as you woo everyone to yourself. Amen.

Deuteronomy 8:12-18 When you eat and are full, and build beautiful houses to live in, and your herds and flocks grow large, and your silver and gold multiply, and everything else you have increases, be careful that your heart doesn’t become proud and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. He led you through the great and terrible wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, a thirsty land where there was no water. He brought water out of the flint rock for you. He fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your ancestors had not known, in order to humble and test you, so that in the end he might cause you to prosper. You may say to yourself, ‘My power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,’ but remember that the Lord your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
Deuteronomy 1:2, 3 It is an eleven-day journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea by way of Mount Seir. In the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, Moses told the Israelites everything the Lord had commanded him to say to them.
